For anyone who has just landed here by accident, you may be wondering what WOYWW is all about. Briefly, it stands for "What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday", and lots of us like minded crafters take a photo (or many photos" of just how our desk looks, without deliberate tidying up, and then we show all our other crafting friends what we are doing. It is the brainchild and hosted by our leader, Julia, at Stamping Ground. Anyone is welcome and all we ask is that you leave us a brief comment on what you see, so that we can call on you in turn to see what you are doing. Any craft is welcome. One warning though, it is very addictive.
This is the first time since April that my desk has really been used for its proper purpose of crafting. quite a mixture, as you can see. All these photos were taken on Tuesday morning, while the light was good, and I even had the window wide open (the scaffolding has all gone). You may remember that, way back at the beginning of May, I went up to my son's presentation ceremony for his Chief Constable's Commendation for the work they all did during the Riots. I took a video of the whole thing, and then burned it onto DVD for him, but I never got round to printing the discs or doing the covers for the cases (one for him and one for his pal). I had also put together some small videos of his eldest daughter onto DVD, and needed to finish that off too. You can see the work in progress on and around my lovely Tonic Guillotine.
There is also a birthday card, which just needed finishing for my son-in-law. All I really needed to do was the insert, and to put my label on the back. If you want to know more about that card and a couple of others I have done, just look back at my previous post.
All my shelves are going to be cleared off, cleaned and everything sorted before the important stuff goes back. That is where I need to start my great sort out and tidy up, before I bring back all the things that got dumped in the other room while work was going on. The bright pink thing on my desk is my new phone. I chose that colour of case so that I could find it more easily, and also no-one else would even want it.
The dogs seem to be happy to settle down on the floor while I am working/playing, which is very helpful of them. Flash, in particular, looks for the sun to relax in.
Gemma just has to decide that only one chew is on offer and when that is gone, it is time for a nap. I really must make a serious attempt to keep the floor as clear as possible to give them room to stretch out, and to give me a chance to craft in peace.
Suddenly realised they were both lain down happily behind me
If you have had the patience to get all the way down to the bottom of this post, then thank you, and must send you on your way to visit some of the other desk on show this week over at Julia's place. Have a great week, all of you.
